Another thread about having to " draft a WR in the 1st round" in a draft without any sure fire elite WR.

How many angles are we going to go with this topic?

I agree we need a WR. It's just that this years class is not that great. Rather ride it out one more year and draft a stud next year in the fitst.

2 Years left at 1k seasons.

However, as previously mentioned above, put him in the slot, and he can minimally, contribute another 2,000-2,500 yards over 3 seasons. He has too much fire in him to walk away from the game while he can still make a roster even at a reduced role.

One thing that you all should remember is that most Wr's at this age have been replaced or their replacement is already on the roster. The team (coaches) in most case make the change and not the player. Is it possible some of these Wr's had more in them than it shows? Or was their receiving reduction due to a reduced role for a younger model. Marvin Harrison, Issac Bruce kept going and playing at a high level all the way up to their retirement.

You also have to look at QB and offensive play of the team at the time they hit 34. Did they have a Manning under center or a Vince Young? Stat sheets never tell the whole story.

Before Cam, who was our last first round pick? It's been so long I can't remember.

I suspect we'll look to get a WR in the 1st or 2nd round, but I don't want to see us reach on a guy. As much crap as Hurney gets and has earned, at least he made his 1st round picks count, and I don't want us throwing that out the window because Smitty is 34. If that WR is BPA sure (for our team), otherwise we're just reaching due to a need. Everything I've heard says this is a deep WR class but with no real elite prospects e.g. AJ Green, Julio Jones, etc.

That's what I was thinking as well and that isn't exceptable because we went years without having a first round pick. When you make those types of decisions then you get what we are now. Tbis isn't directed to carpanfan96, I am just speaking that Hurney did good with the first rounds but when you don't have any for 3 years that is a serious set back especially when you aren't drafting 1st round talents in later rounds or bringing in really good talent in free agency.

One thing I learned about Smitty, never say never, about ANYTHING dealing with him.
